House Review: "Baggage"
5/13/2010 2:43 AM
While it's true Alvie's appearance was a little contrived, I thought that he served a purpose beyond having someone else leave House. Alvie is funny and perhaps lightened the episode up a little, what with House being really down here. House even made a couple of funny remarks that fell flat because his mood is so low. Re the book: I didn't realize House never gave up his apartment, but it seems natural that he would have left things like the book there. That's something he wouldn't have wanted Wilson to come across. Wilson would have noticed the author's name immediately and asked embarrassing questions.
Heroes Review: "The Art of Deception"

I've had it with your bellyaching, House. I'm sticking with other sites for my Heroes discussions. Off to TV Buddy.
The Return of Adam Monroe!
1/19/2010 2:25 AM
Why is writer House even writing about Heroes when his main, repetitive theme is how the show has gone downhill? It's extremely annoying and tiresome. Re Adam Monroe: I never liked him and didn't care when he died. I would have been interested in comments about the meaning of Hiro's "trial" or Claire being given a lesbian best friend or Sylar's latest attempt at reformation. Or maybe all you knew was the bit about Adam Monroe so that's what we got.
Daniel or Henry? Ugly Betty Creator Mulls Romance Options
1/6/2010 2:46 AM
No way could Daniel & Betty be an item. There is no chemistry there whatever. I have always wanted Betty to get back with Henry. Matt is too whiny and immature. Gio is too blue collar. Henry is the perfect cool, upbeat geek for Betty.
Heroes Round Table: "Upon This Rock; Let It Bleed"
1/6/2010 2:30 AM
You guys forget we don't all think the way you do. I find plot-driven shows shallow and uninvolving. I LIKE seeing characters dealing with personal and interpersonal conflicts. But it's true the story is moving way too slowly. Still, Sylar IS now taking his shirt off on a regular basis. You guys look at Tracy. We ladies love the gorgeous psycho-killer.
TV Fanatic Mid-Season Report Card: Heroes
12/26/2009 1:27 AM
Another voice here from someone who finds Samuel lacking in appeal, which is odd because a bad guy should at least have some evil pizazz going for him. I would still like Mohinder going back to his original role as non-powered good guy: the moralistic brain to HRG's barely-moral brawn. And that "Tracy topless" comment was just juvenile.
Peter and Claire to "Sort of Bond" on Heroes
12/21/2009 12:58 AM
Yeah, I'm happy even to know we have a few hours left of the show. As for Claire & Peter bonding over their loss; I'd love to see them take it out on Sylar. I love that psychopath, but I also love seeing him get his evil behind kicked. I also want Sylar or Hiro or anyone to take out Samuel. I hate that guy.
House Review: "Ignorance is Bliss"
11/25/2009 1:48 AM
"He simply showed up?" Did you make a trip to the fridge and miss it? I thought Cuddy's trick, misleading House to the wrong address had great impact. We're used to House being mean, but now when he's vulnerable it felt incredibly cruel rather than funny that he got conned and shut out that way. 'Not that he doesn't deserve it, but we feel for him anyway. And Cuddy repeating the next day that there was no chance for them was just as painful, even though House put on a brave face for Wilson later. I don't know how Cuddy knew House caught on that she and Lucas were only pretending to break up, but I like that she's obviously still hurting over House. How could she not?
Heroes Round Table: "Thanksgiving"
11/24/2009 8:10 PM
Aw, darn. I always think a show is pretty good then I read perfectly valid criticisms that make me think less of it. I agree that Claire & Gretchen have made absurd turnarounds from their recent very definite positions. Claire now wants to be just one of the freaks? Gretchen is already over the trauma of being a target? And it's true the heroes need to get over it and use their powers more. But I really disagree about Hiro. That's just blaming the victim to say he should be killed off. He just needs permission [from the writers] to grow up.
Heroes Review: "Shadowboxing"
11/12/2009 2:01 AM
Gee, I actually forgot about Tracy! Even without a catchphrase, the connection between the stories is Samuel's tattoo wish list. But that would be meaningful only if Samuel's goal made any sense. He doesn't seem that charismatic to me - I guess he's just surrounded by cowards and sheep. The problem I really have with the writing is waste. Gretchen is already gone and served no real purpose. HRG's almost-fling from the past served no purpose. Good news for now: I just read a blog that listed shows already axed and Heroes wasn't mentioned. Whew.
Discuss "I Am Sylar" in Our Heroes Forum!
4/23/2009 7:22 PM
I keep noticing no one is getting the Norman Bates homage. I love that Sylar is turning that around and making it freaky psychotherapy. Anyway, I'm sorry one of the originals is being killed off. Even those most badly handled by the writers (Peter, Mohinder) are redeemable; it would fit in with the "Redemption" season theme.
I hope Hiro's 2nd big story arc works out better than the first, which was just too far removed. We'd all love to see him become that cool ninja warrior, finally. It does look like the Big Split with Ando is imminent, though. Bummer.
My take on why Sylar wasn't killed by Danko's knife is that the DNA reshuffling has messed with his structure. But what I want most of all is for all those emotional appeals from Elle, Luke, Micah and Mommy to finally turn Sylar toward his own redemption. They all seemed to chip away at his self-loathing. Maybe his presidential ambition will actually be for good instead of evil.
Last note. Claire is too young for Sylar! EEW. Give it a rest!
